Expert Tips

To crush hard peppermint candies, place in resealable plastic freezer bag; crush with rolling pin or meat mallet.

In a hurry? Refrigerate peppermint bark 30 to 45 minutes or until set.

Substitute red, green and white hard peppermint candies or candy canes for the red and white hard peppermint candies.
